Passing this information along. Please forward to interested parties:
Raindance has been an important force in the international independent filmmaking community for the past two decades. Founded by filmmakers for filmmakers, the organization started out with their now famous indpendent film festival in London, and later founded the British Independent Film Awards. Now with offices around the world including a newly formed New York City chapter, they continue to promote independent filmmaking through screenings, workshops, and seminars.
We are looking forward to offering a “Documentary Production Certificate” with them beginning the evening of Wednesday, February 2 and spanning the next five Wednesdays. This certificate program provides the nuts and bolts from the early stages through distribution with some of the leading industry experts. Courses including Funding Fundamentals (with Reva Goldberg from Cinereach), basic legal contracts (Innes Smolansky, entertainment attorney), Documentary Production & Post Overview (Julia Mintz, producer), Film Festivals (Basil Tsiokos, doc consultant and Sundance programmer), and finally Outreach and Distribution with Lila Yomtoob (filmmaker-producer).
Mono No Aware has built a reputation over the past few years as one of the most exciting expanded cinema festivals in the world. Placing a strong emphasis on the cinematic experience, they pride themselves on showcasing 8mm and 16mm live film projections accompanied in some capacity by live performance elements.
Picking up on a successful run of courses they previously taught, we are pleased to be hosting four upcoming series of workshops. These are all taught with experienced and practicing filmmakers. Super 8mm filmmaking (instructor Lucas Millard), 16mm hand-painting on film, direct filmmaking workshop & Stop Motion Puppet Animation (Steve Cossman) and 16mm filmmaking (Fern Silva). Courses include film, processing, and equipment access. Thanks to our partners at Kodak and Pac-lab.
